pastor from chicago, reverend jeremiah wright. steve smith was part of the strategic team in 2008 when they decided that they would not attack barack obama based on his pastor. but this is a different year and it is telling that the right thinks what will unravel the presidency of barack obama and make him a one-term president, the thing that will make people vote for mitt romney is not something from the obama presidency but rather something secret from barack obama's past. something secret people didn't know about him before. if they only knew this about him, his reelection would be impossible. that's the one side of this bomb shell tape. from the other side, this year's bomb shell tapes of paul ryan and mitt romney have not been about some secret past for these men. unless you count paul ryan pledging his allegiance back in 2 2005. the tape that's made a big impact against the republican side this year has been tape of things that paul ryan and mitt romney have been saying within the past year. specifically when they are talking to conservative audiences. so two weeks ago, david cor

their own medical coverage. so let's debate this. steve moore, senior economics writer for "the wall street journal", dr -- [inaudible] ceo of vital springs technologies and author of "get off the dime: the secret of changing who pays for your health care." and simon rosenberg, president and founder of the new democrat network, also a former clinton campaign adviser. gentlemen, thanks so much for being here. steve, let me start with you. so places like sears and olive garden, red lobster, they're going to give their employees a chunk of change, and supposedly you can go out and buy your own insurance. is this a great idea or a horrible idea? [laughter] >> i actually kind of like the direction here of, basically, saying to workers you can shop around, you can buy the health care plan that really suits your need. so it's a kind of freedom of choice approach. now, the way this ties in, by the way, allison, to obama's health care plan that you were talking about a minute ago is that under obama's plan what you're seeing is a lot of employers are dropping their health care plans that they provid
against the new york mets. steve harrigan live from miami marlins park. steve hit by his very first pitch. vertigo, double vision. did adam greenberg ever give up on the sport that he grew up on and loved? >> adam greenberg says since his boyhood, he had always dreamed of playing as a major league baseball player and says despite seven years of waiting and the hard injuries, he said he never gave up on that dream and the more you hear this young man talk, you realize he is someone with a remarkable attitude. >> i was at a low point a few times. but always realizing that there is light at the end and no matter what, you have two choices, you can stay down and just feel sorry for yourself or get up and keep going. >> greenberg behind signed a one-day contract for this game with the miami marlins. but he says at 31, he's still hoping to sign on full time with a team for next season, bill. >> bill: he's gotten some help with his comeback. what's happened there? >> a huge on-line drive by a film maker who says he's been inspired by greenberg hopes to get him another at bat. he said the inspira
of interviews for "60 minutes," steve kroft and i asked about their medicare plans. >> what i won't do is take governor romney and congressman ryan's recommendations to turn medicare into a voucher system which would dump more costs on to seniors. what i'm not willing to do is to pay for another tax cut for folks like you and me by cutting help to young people to go to college or basic research that might end up providing cures for debilitating diseases. that's not a recipe for growth and we can reduce our deficit, including making some smart decisions on medicare in particular, where we're focused on lowering health care costs by reforming how health care is delivered but we don't need to be voucherizing the system to dump those costs on to seniors because, frankly, they can't afford it right now. >> pelley: there is a lot of rhetoric about medicare. what do you intend to do? >> well, i don't want any change to medicare for current seniors or for those that are nearing retirement. so the plan stays exactly same. >> pelley: make sure i understand. the idea under your plan for future seniors wo
